All I can say is, wow! This was a day of celebration and a day of adventure. First off, we celebrated Dave S' 200th hike!! Congrats to Dave. He received an honorary bandanna, the traditional poster pic, and treats for after the hike. We also took some time out of our hike to Celebrate the life of Sharon and Rick's beloved Willow. She joined Sitka Tuesday and today, Sharon and Rick scattered her ashes. We all went to her resting site to say our goodbyes. For those who don't know Willow, she is the dog that is posted on this hike, she has been a fellow hiker and a friend to all of those she has met. She will be missed by many. The adventerous part of our hike was as follows: hiked the wet and slippery trails of the lollipop, we than made our way to the middle parking lot which has been overtaken by film crews. From there as we hiked towards the visitor's center and we encountered lights and pup tents. Island Ford is being utilized by a film company. So despite the humidity and wet trails, everyone who came experienced a little different hike today. 18 of our hikers made their way to North River Tavern after the hike. ~ Carol
